As a feminist interpretation of these two novels, this paper makes a cross cultural study on the theme of women salvation. Under the influence of gender culture and the different national cultures, the two women characters in the novels have quite distinctive experiences, a deep understanding of which may bring insight into cross cultural perception, thereby promote successful intercultural communication.
